The School: St Cuthbert and First Martyrs’ Catholic Primary

Having embarked upon their first year of Enterprise Education, St Cuthbert and First Martyrs’ Catholic Primary is situated in Bradford and is one of Enabling Enterprise’s new Yorkshire schools set to develop their students’ Enterprise Skills. Year 6 have already experienced an exciting trip to Brewin Dolphin in Leeds and have been challenged, yet again, alongside the rest of the school to show their skills in Problem Solving, Listening Carefully and Using Imagination to complete a day of quick, creative thinking.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

With an exhausted and overcrowded planet, the new cadets at St Cuthbert were set the challenge of creating a society on the new moon, Utopia. With limited space on the rocket and limited budget, the pupils had to work as a team at Staying Positive and Problem Solving to decide which crew members and what buildings would be the foundation of their society. Using Imagination was another essential skill, as the cadets began designing and constructing their societies, with KS2 keen to create 3D buildings to showcase their Aiming High.

The Results:

With all the societies constructed, the classes began a joint year group intergalactic showcase of their designs with Year 1 and 2; Year 3 and Year 4; Year 5 and Year 6 pitching their designs and voting for a winning team in both year groups. The showcase saw some very dynamic and persuasive pitches: Year 5, with flamboyant gestures and engaging tone of voice, whilst Year 2 showed their ability at Staying Positive as they wereSharing Ideas about the day’s challenge and their group’s successes to the whole class. Well done to all the year groups for their dedication to the Enterprise Skills and a very exciting first experience of Enterprise Education.

What they said:

  • “They’ve really enjoyed the day and used their imagination to construct some brilliant designs. I just didn’t want to stop them.” – Teacher, Year 4
  • “I aimed really high when I was making my building and I could not get it to work so I just stayed positive and worked out how to do it.” – Student, Year 2

Well done to everyone who was involved.
